ConneX LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
ConneX is the process of teens being engaged in meaningful participation through planning, decision-making, and project delivery in our schools, organizations, and communities. While encouraging the gifts and talents of individual teens, ConneX places equal focus on the investment of these assets in the community. Individual youth and adults, organizations, and communities all benefit when youth are engaged as full and active participants.
Aligned with the Alberta Social Studies (10) curriculum, ConneX serves as a curriculum supplement to capture spontaneous leadership through the development and execution of teen-led community impact projects.
ConneX Teen Leadership Program Objective
Through 12 interactive workshops, teens will explore the multiple perspectives of globalization and the local, national and international implications of globalization on lands, cultures, economies, human rights and/or quality of life. The infusion of multiple perspectives will allow teens to capture their spontaneous leadership through the development and execution of an individual, paired, and/or group-led community impact project.
